Ken, that's a really nice model.  A job well done.  Not a model you see every day up north of say Panama!  :thumb:

I don't usually enter my models for judging, for various

reasons. If I make it DU for the narrow gauge meet next

year, they will be entered though!. I get a big kick out of

people trying to figure out why the cars don't look like

anything that operated in North America. My biggest problem

is in some cases you cannot have just 1 or 2 cars, case in

point my 26 ore car conversion's from Bachmann 2 bay Coal

cars.

Canadian Ken Eh!

The boxcars operated in Peru, as standard gauge cars, later
retrucked for 3 foot gauge, had to make a few changes to resize it to a On2&1/2 foot car. Happy the way it turned out,
need to set up my lettering device to do the Rly and number boards which need to be added yet.
A few set backs on the project, including 4 sets of doors until I was satisfied and a second set of sides as I screwed up the first set.:bang::bang:
